Fun with Fertility Friend

So this month I started taking my temps and charting. I have actually been doing quite will. I was originally going to keep track on excel but switched to fertility friend since it seemed so much easier to use. I take my temp when the alarm goes off in the morning and since I never get up when the alarm goes off I listen to NPR while the thermometer does its job and then write it down on the paper on the night stand. I was originally using the memory on the thermometer but it always reads 97.7. The first day I remembered my temp to be 97.41 but then when I went back to check it said 97.7. I thought I just was asleep and read it wrong. When it happened again on day 2 I realized it was the thermometer and not human error. It feels good to be actually doing something productive towards having a baby. Perhaps it will limit my baby gear obsession. I doubt it but it would be nice.

Not much progress

So I have done nothing on my list! I have however decided that I am going to go to my pcp for the follow up on my osteopenia. The more I thought about it the more I wanted to avoid the endocrinologist. My pcp is more likely to try to find a reason behind the low levels and fix that instead of just treating the problem. I don't want to take the biophosphate drugs since you can't be pregnant on them and well I really want that to happen so I think that is the best route for me. Now I just have to call and make the appointment.

I did have some quality baby time last weekend which will keep me going for a little while. Baby Sophie may just be the cutest kid I have ever met!

We are off to the Lake this weekend for Sun and set up! Can't wait!
